I have my computer since one year now and I got a problem yesterday. Last night, it just turned off even though I was not using it. I thought maybe it had over heated, and turned itself off since it remained on for a long time and had been running some graphics intensive games. So I let it off for a few hours and turned it on later; but the problem still remains.

I think that the power supply died. I get the green LED on my motherboard to stay lit when the power supply is switched on, and when I press the power button, some lights blink for a second, and some don't. The fan does not spin at all.

What other hardware problems could be causing this? Am I right to suspect the power supply?
Any help would be appreciated.

Then problem may be due to these factors:
1 - Power supply
2 - bad rams
3 - video adapter
4 - Hard drive
5 - Motherboard
Check the power supply first! Also examine the motherboard for blown capacitors.
first starts from the power supply .. remove the cable which is connected to the mother board . take a single jumper or a single stand wire . put that that on 14th and 16th pin of that cable ..if the fan spins then the SPMS is good.

check with the motherboard now . remove all the additional component like Graphics card and all. add only necessary component .like harddisk and RAM and LAN Card .. and start try to boot the system . if its works fine then your mother board is good.

Please check and confirm me.
